Group Deal Tools is a supposedly new way to make money from home from an overly simplistic method that is not explained enough on their site.
I found this program after re-looking at various work at home sites I know to be pushing scams (I use those sites to see which program they are pushing). From time to time, they change up what they promote and this is the new program that’s being pushed.
But looking over the page, it’s creator and examining what they claim in how it’s easy to work from home with their system, I decided not to take the “bait” and advise against this program. My reasons for this are actually quite solid and I will explain why in this review. Furthermore, I will actually provide a legitimate system that helps you work from home throughout this review (and it’s coming up shortly).
Quick review of Group Deal Tools:
Full name of the program: Group Deal Tools aka Home Profit System.
Creator: Melissa Baker (I have seen her name before in questionable programs, but perhaps she’s a different Melissa Baker…).
Price: $6.95 access for 7 days, then $84.95 monthly. I’m not sure if there will be any further up-sells.
Overview of program: The problem here is that it’s SUPER vague, they don’t do a good job at all of explaining what it is they teach.
They break down the system into 3 steps, but these 3 steps still make the explanation too vague, and this lack of truly understanding the program is why I think it’s risky to get.
My overall rating: 1 out of 10 stars.
I have to be honest in saying that I didn’t buy it because I simply do not trust it.
Programs which don’t explain what they do specifically that ask for money are very risky investments in my experience, and it’s one of the reasons I do not recommend this program.
Do you recommend another alternative? Yes:
Why I have a hard time trusting Group Deal Tools:
There are 4 big reasons:
1) Fake news sites link to it.
As I said in the beginning of this review, I bookmark specific work at home websites that are fake. These kinds of fake work at home sites constantly rotate a new program every few weeks and in my experience, most of the time, they are scams. I honestly can’t remember when there was one good program peddled by them. Here’s another example of a fake site.
In any case, when several questionable sites recommend a work at home program, I’m already on the defense.
2) It just sounds too easy.
As a guy who works from home and knows how realistic it is, but yet knows how simple it isn’t, I can tell you that vague promises of easy money through little or no work are always a red flag to watch out for.
In the case of Group Deal Tools, there is just too much vague information. As good as I am at figuring out how programs work, this is one of those times when I simply can’t even make a prediction on what they’ll teach, that’s how vague they are. And the more vague a program’s explanation is, the more vague it is as a whole and the less recommended it is by me.
I mean throughout their short sales letter, the basic thesis is:
You can make a lot of money with this program (how is not explained).
A Melissa Baker and her husband just signed up, worked a little bit and BAM, made a lot of money (it’s NEVER that simple!).
They give you 3 steps on how it works which basically says, sign up with the program and make money. That’s as deep as the explanation goes…
3) The testimonials on the site may have no association with the program.
Fake testimonials are always a bad sign obviously but you need to carefully look for them in order to spot them. In the case of this program, you will see numerous testimonials, some of which cite Group Deal Tools, while others do not.
While my opinion is that even the ones who do cite Group Deal Tools as working for them, I often see many programs fake these things and just make up text, but who knows, maybe it’s real in this case…
But the ones further below a message that says “big news on the internet”, and there’s 3 screenshots of people. The connection the person who made the site is trying to make is that this program is actually a big deal on the internet, but it’s not so…
The truth is that these 3 images and people are just regular people who were once interviewed on a news network about making money from home. They have NO association with Group Deal Tools.
I also see those same interviews and videos cited on other fake work from home sites. They are simply being exploited so people think they are associated with the said work at home programs.
Want more proof? Here’s Group Deal Tools owns words on these testimonials (a screenshot):
Basically I highlighted in yellow the questionable part. It simply says that the testimonials “may or may not” be associated with the program. What? How is that credible…
If a program is good and you have success stories, shouldn’t you proudly display them on your site? This program doesn’t appear to do that…
4) Paying a lot for very little info beforehand is not recommended.
I know that people who find these types of programs are anxious to find something that works. Believe me, I was once in that spot and know how badly people want to find something that’s legitimate, but people, please think about this:
This program has enough question marks as it is and then it tries to charge you a lot of money for a program which you know very little to nothing about. You have a basic idea of it, but there’s literally no explanation of what you’re getting or learning.
I’ve made enough mistakes in the past buying into scam work at home programs like these to know better and now I want to relay that lesson to you guys so you don’t make the same mistakes!
At this point, I could keep explaining more questionable things about this whole program, but I really feel like this is enough…
Final Rating: Group Deal Tools.
1 out of 10 stars. I have 0 belief in this program but I still gave it 1 star for the benefit of the doubt. Being that I didn’t buy it, I can’t give you a 100% assurance that it’s a scam or not, but I can share my years of experience with programs like these and their look alike sales pages I’ve gone through and learned from and how most if not all of them don’t back up their claims.
My final thoughts:
A legitimate work at home program (like Wealthy Affiliate) has to have the following qualifications to be legitimate:
1) I believe it needs to be free to try.
2) It needs to CLEARLY explain what you’re getting into by letting you know what it teaches or what you’ll be doing.
3) There need to be legitimate, direct success stories (like from the Wealthy Affiliate program I recommend), not some fake ones or those you may or may not be real…
4) They need to realistically let you know what the odds of you making money from home are. It’s not an easy task for people, that’s the reality, but it is possible (that’s me speaking from experience).
5) It needs to provide great support and help as these things are critical for people to go from just learning to make money from home to actually doing it.
In my opinion on just about single qualification I just named, Group Deal Tools does not meet those expectations.
However, my #1 recommendation does meet all these expectations:
I apologize for my review of Group Deal Tools not being more thorough (there’s room for doubt, sure), but I’ve gone through countless programs like these and just have a 6th sense for when not to join something like this.
